Profile June 2020
New Hampshire-based Majka Burhardt is a superhero. She can climb almost anything, including ice, where she just became the first woman to receive the American Mountain Guides Association Ice Instructor certification (in addition to her rock guiding certification). She can use science and adventure to protect some of the most biodiverse places in the world, mountains referred to as “sky islands,” working in partnership with the local people to build a better future. And she can raise toddler twins—in a pandemic.
